I just realized that all this time we’ve had FR*A going, we’ve never had anyone post about Iggy and The Stooges. Hands down one of the best frontmen ever to grace a stage, Iggy Pop brings it. The thing I love about him so much is his
raw power (which is also the name of my favorite Iggy/Stooges album). The dood is 60 years old now, but still brings it on stage, and naturally too.
Iggy and The Stooges are often cited as “the godfather of punk” - and rightfully so. At a time when 10 minute, intricate solos were popular Iggy came out with just enough sophistication to be above punk, yet enough raw energy to destroy the pretentiousness of the time.
“Big deal. So I rolled in the broken glass. I mean, I spent like what 30 seconds in the broken glass. I didn’t even feel the broken glass. I scored a cool chick after. I was too stoned to fuck her. And other people, what do they do, they sit around really uptight for like 40 years waiting for the chance to say, ‘So Iggy, are you gonna roll in the broken glass again?’ Now broken glass is a major corporate advertisement. It’s fucking Converse. There’s a little Iggy shoe with the broken glass.”
Iggy Pop with Perry Farrell, Ray Gun #35, April 1996
